Cannes Film Festival over the years

International Cannes Film Festival

“A festival is a neutral territory outside of politics, it is a microcosm representing our world as it would be if people could communicate with each other without intermediaries and speak the same language.” Jean Cocteau.

The history of the red carpet at the Palace of Festivals on the Croisette in Cannes dates back to the pre-war times. The Cannes Film Festival was born as a response to the first world film festival held in Venice. The growing fascism of the mid 20th century, however, affected all the spheres of the society life, cinema being no exception. Mussolini who came to power in Italy in the 30s made the Venice Film Festival politicized. Only films glorifying fascism could be the winners.
